The Duke University Program in Genetics and Genomics (UPGG) is an umbrella graduate training program that spans several basic science and clinical departments and bridges the Medical Center and the College of Arts and Sciences. Founded in 1967 and supported by a continuous NIH training grant for 25 years and running, the UPGG currently consists of over 100 faculty and adjunct faculty and more than 75 students.

For several decades, UPGG has served as an important forum for genetic training and education in model systems (bacteria, yeast, fungi, drosophila, zebrafish, mouse), population genetics, and human genetics. In recent years, the program has developed a close relationship with Duke's Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy (IGSP) to provide a broad and flexible training environment that spans both genetics and the genome sciences.
